To massive cheers outside the courtroom and gasps inside, a guilty verdict was reached on Monday!
On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson was pronounced dead of an overdose. Over two years later and after a grueling six-week trial, the involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, has finally reached an end.
The jury turned over a GUILTY verdict in case, siding with the prosecutor, who argued Murray was a reckless physician, who put his own agenda before that of his patients. It took the jury only 16 hours to come to this conclusion.
We hope this brings closure to MJ's family and fans.
UPDATE: Murray will face sentencing on Tuesday November 29th, 2011. Prosecutor asked that he be immediately remanded, and the judge ruled in favor! He was put directly into custody without bail!
